Exclamation 8700r and iPhone

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8700r, but deactivated it because my wife bought me the iphone. I would like to still use my 8700 but use the same number as the iphone. Once i put the iphone's SIM card into the 8700, what features will i get. I am asking advice before i do anything. I am both new to the 8700-2mo, and iphone 2 weeks...

Welcome to the BBF!

Placing the SIM in the 8700 will get you a phone and SMS, nothing more, not data, not internet, no email. If you want more, you will need a data plan.

The SMS will come off whatever plan is attached to the SIM you place in the BB.

Yes it will deduct from the 200! You can always increase to the 30 dollar iphone plan and get 1500 texts
